HIV, STI & Hepatitis C Testing

Identifying infections early is important whether it be HIV, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) or Hepatitis. Early identification leads to early treatment and better health outcomes.

We offer walk-in HIV testing and STI screening at our Albany office. All our testing is FREE but is only offered to those with designated risk factors. Criteria for free testing can be found Here

Our HIV testing is rapid – meaning you know your result in the same session, all it requires is one quick finger stick blood drop sample. If the first test is reactive, additional testing will be needed.  

We offer urine-based screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea - results in 3-10 days and as needed Hepatitis C testing with same session results. For men who have sex with men, we also offer syphilis testing that requires a small blood sample with results in one week. 

We now offer couples testing! Two or more persons who are in- or are planning to be in- a sexual relationship receive all elements and counseling together, including finding out the results.

If you test positive for any of the above mentioned infections, we have a full range of services to assist you. Testing can also be obtained through your primary care physician.
